Authentic Client Testimonials
"Having variously tried spending their weekends at football, swimming and dancing classes, our kids have really taken to the Dundalk School of Music. The facilities are fantastic and all of the tutors make the lessons so enjoyable for children of various ages. My 9 year old daughter and 6 year old son bound into the car every Saturday morning to head off to the DSM ... the precise opposite of school mornings!
I think it's very beneficial for the kids to have one-to-one lessons with a tutor, who isn't distracted by supervising large groups of children. I've found that this approach is still excellent value, as the DSM lessons are thoughtful and well structured. Every week our kids come home with something new that they can practice on their own. For each lesson I pay for, my kids genuinely get a full week of activity.
I also notice that the content is broad and rounded. My daughter is learning piano but I can also see that she now takes an interest in various aspects of many different musical genres. She certainly learns a lot more than just the notes on whatever piece of sheet music she happens to be looking at. DSM also manages my son's drum lessons so that even at a young age, he can really enjoy what he's learning. While he'll work at the formal skills of different percussion techniques, there's also time for him to crash cymbals along to his favourite AC/DC tracks!
In general, I'm delighted that my kids are learning so much at DSM but that's not why I'll be bringing them back. The reason they'll be attending again next term is that they have so much fun with all the great people at DSM."
Fergal & Diane Cassidy
"All four of our children attend DSM, learning piano, guitar and voice. We are delighted with the musical progress they have made under Patricia’s tutelage. She is an excellent teacher, and has assembled an equally committed and competent staff.
What is especially nice is how enthusiastic all the teachers are about music, and how this transmits to the students. We recommend the school unreservedly!"
"It has been my pleasure to avail of he services of the Dundalk School of Music since its establishment in late 2009 and have found it to be a happy and encouraging environment in which to learn music.
Since that time I have seen the students grow to become very fine, talented and entertaining young musicians. Their enthusiasm and love for music can be seen from the many awards and attainments achieved by them.
The teachers themselves deserve great credit for their efforts in coaxing out the hidden talents of their students and challenging them to master the areas they find difficult.
I have no hesitation in recommending Dundalk School of Music to any would-be music student, young or old."
John Sheahan - 'Dubliner'
"Patricia has a passion for music and shares this gift generously with all her students. She achieves high technical and performance skills without losing the sense of fun and adventure that ought to be part of all music making.
My grandsons, Darragh and Cillian attend her classes with great success, and I have always enjoyed playing at the school's Christmas recitals. I wish Patricia continued success in all her musical endeavours."
